Meatless Monday: Protein-Packed Peanut Quinoa
Lots of protein here, everybody! Between the quinoa, tempeh, and peanuts- you will be lifting the big weights in no time! This will make about 4-6 servings. We ate some for dinner, and then made lettuce wraps the next day with the leftovers for lunch! This was so delicious, I am making it again tonight, with just a few variations.
1 cup quinoa
1/4 cup peanuts
1/2 chopped red onion
1 head of broccoli, flourets, chopped
4 chopped garlic cloves
1/4 of a green pepper
1 package of tempeh, chopped into cubes
1/2 grape tomatoes, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
What to do:
Sautee the onion, garlic, and green pepper. Then, add the tempeh-you want it to be golden brown. Add some soy sauce.
Cook the quinoa according to the package. You will need 2 cups of water, for the 1 cup of quinoa. Bring it to a boil, and then add the broccoli to the pot. Cook for about 15 minutes, adding water as needed, and stirring periodically.
Add the chopped tomatoes, and peanuts to the tempeh. When the broccoli and quinoa are done, combine them in the pan, and mix. Add more soy sauce to taste.
